Bryan Ferry Recruits Jonny Greenwood and Flea for Upcoming Solo Album
Published Nov 25, 2009Roxy Music front-man Bryan Ferry is recording the follow-up to his last solo album, 2007's Dylanesque, where Ferry showed he isn't all smooth Brit art rock by paying tribute to Bob Dylan. And for the new solo disc, Ferry has gathered quite the impressive line-up.
The record, tentatively scheduled for a summer 2010 release, features Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Chic's Nile Rodgers, according to Rolling Stone. And, yes, you are correct Radiohead obsessives: Greenwood did also appear on Ferry's 2002 effort, Frantic.
Sound good? We think so. We know it's a long time to wait, so here's a tip: you can check out a bit of studio footage here to tide you over until the album drops. Or there's always that DJ Hell collaboration.
